Season 30 of Dancing With the Stars came to a formal close last night our two champions we’re revealed. Iman Shumpert and Danielle Karagach were granted the Mirror ball trophy after a competitive season being viewed as the underdogs of the season.

The pair have had a decent season usually finding themselves safe with average scores. As the competition started to heat up however so did their scores. They received their first perfect score Week 6 of the competition when they performed during Horror Night with a dance based on the movie “Us”. From that point on, it was clear to audiences and the judges not to count them out.

Their final performance won over the judges earning them perfect scores for both dances. Judge Bruno Tonioli regarded Shumpert as “The King Of Ballroom” dancing. Once they were crowned Shumpert said “I never thought I’d have a ballroom trophy.”

Shumpert is the first NBA player to win in Dancing with The Stars and it is clear that on the dance floor he is a force to be reckoned with.
